I know a bunch of you are working on the Crazy Season blog hop we were doing this year and this is perfect for that…I think this is a better option than sticking an adhesive product and then getting your project wet to get if off…here they are… Embroidery Stitch Templates-500x500

You can find the Templates HERE to purchase.


Here they are all cut ready to use…in their categories.


So they day after I finished our Summer Block of the week I got these in the mail…and look what was included…IMG_5264

You would mark on dark with the our favorite marking pen.  Click HERE for white marking pen. You would use lead pencil on light fabric…



When the feather stitch is complete…add the lazy daisy flowers…


Here is mine using no templates…I am pretty good…but with these the template my stitching would have been perfect…don’t get me wrong…I am perfectly fine with my stitching…but SO MANY people struggle with the stitches itself and then the spacing is another killer…so regardless of you level of expertise you NEED these template…

IMG_5266We have the book and the templates available on our website just click the links above in the post to “go there”…again…remember we so appreciate you ordering from us…and rewarding us for informing you on these great products…I know you know it is the right thing to do to support the little businesses.

Love what they have done with all the dishes, wished my refrigerator was that neat and clean. Thanks for a chance to win.


I love summer! We love to go to the beach and just relax and read a good book. But paddle boarding or kayaking on one of the many lakes in the area is right up there with favorite things about summer. Thank you for showing us this darling quilt using such a fun charm pack.
